Emergency school closures
An emergency school closure is when you must close your school due to an unplanned incident. For example, due to severe weather or a burst water main.
You do not need to be at school to report a closure, but you do need an account.
Make sure that only one member of staff reports a closure on the system, so that parents only receive one message.
The system will:
- confirm on-screen that it has processed your school closure
- list the closure on School closures | East Sussex County Council
- email local radio stations - BBC Radio Sussex, More Radio, Seahaven Radio, Heart FM, Uckfield FM
- email our relevant teams and subscribers to the system
School closure system access
You need a Czone account to report an emergency school closure.
If you do not have an account, a colleague with an account can request one for you using this Czone account request form.
If you have an account but need a password reset, email Schools.ICTServices@eastsussex.gov.uk
